When a QO Visi-Trip circuit breaker trips, the handle snaps to a midpoint position between "OFF" and "ON" and a highly visible, red indicator easily identifies the tripped breaker. This enables you to easily distinguish which breaker has tripped in a load center that may contain up to 42 different circuit breakers. QO circuit breakers have features no other manufacturer can offer. They come in many different sizes and can meet the needs of virtually every function in your home or business. These types of quality, industry exclusive products keep the Square D brand ahead of the competition and are builders' and electrical contractors' first choice in electrical protection.

I need to add 3 mini splits 2 110 and 220v im out of space can i upgrade to two 60 amps and feed a subpanel ?

Answers

You can add a sub panel and feed it with a 60 amp breaker if 60amps is enough to handle the added load. you don't need a main in the sub panel use main lug only panel. If you put a main breaker in it must be install in proper place in the panel with a breaker hold down clamp. don't forget the subpanel must be big enough to hold the new circuits and two more that will have to be moved to install the 60 amp 2 pole.

THIS BREAKER DOES PROVIDE A LOAD NEUTRAL CONNECTION POINT
SQUARE “D” TYPE QO GFCI CIRCUIT BREAKERS UP TO 50 AMPS DO HAVE A LOAD NEUTRAL CONNECTION POINT ON THE BREAKER. THE 60 AMP VERSION IS AVAILABLE WITH OR WITHOUT A LOAD NEUTRAL CONNECTION POINT. SO IF YOUR HOT TUB REQUIRES A NEUTRAL, THIS IS THE BREAKER FOR YOU. IF YOUR TUB HAPPENS TO REQUIRE 60 AMPS, MAKE SURE YOU ORDER THE ONE WITH THE NEUTRAL CONNECTION POINT.

Chose to go with QO series breakers. The 20A, 2-pole is no exception to the QO series of high quality, positive locking breakers. Secure wire fastening makes for easy installation and replacement. The trip window on the front of the breaker eliminates the need of testers to fins out which breaker is in fault mode.

Made the decision to use only Square D QO Series circuit breakers. Professional Quality! Robust design you can feel from the moment you pick one up. Firm "snap-in" style to the panel load bar. Large variety of amperage/voltage to fit all my needs. Securely holds the wire and allows for easy replacement with minimal effort. The trip window on the front of the breaker allows me to quickly identify a tripped breaker without need for test equipment.
